Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Location: Nashville, Tennessee
Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is nationally recognized as a leader in pediatric healthcare. Pharmacy plays an integral role in the care and well-being of all of our patients, from the tiniest patient in our level IV NICU to a teenager on ECMO in our PICU. We are dedicated to providing the best pharmacotherapeutic care for our patients.
We are excited you are interested in our residency program and furthering this care for pediatric patients. Feel free to explore our program via the links below and contact us should you have further questions. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide a glimpse into all the experiences we offer.
The Department of Pharmacy offers many continuing education programs on a regular basis for our pharmacists and technicians, precepts numerous PharmD students from various schools of pharmacy and offers two ASHP-accredited, 52-week residencies for pharmacists interested in pursuing post-graduate work in pediatric pharmacy.
Monroe Carell has a long-standing history of preparing pharmacy residents for their role as pediatric pharmacy clinicians. The PGY2 residency began in 1999. We added a PGY1 residency in 2006.
We are excited to have graduates practicing all over the country as well as here at Monroe Carell. We are passionate about training our residents to be the best clinicians that they can be. We provide a welcoming, learning environment in which you will care for patients with a wide variety of disease states both unique and common to pediatrics.
